Chandra Yoga International’s Yoga Teacher Training programs are designed to produce confident yoga teachers trained in the tradition of classical Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. We strive to instill the qualities of self-discipline, respect, and awareness to each one of our students by emphasizing the importance of following the yamas (social code) and niyamas (personal code), the practices of pranayama, meditation, and asana, and the study of philosophy.
We believe it is the birthright of every person on this earth to find joy and peace in their life. It is our hope that we are able to help each attendant on their journey as they discover their true self and elevate their consciousness level, contributing to a more mindful and peaceful global community.
Our Yoga Teacher Training courses are devoted to assisting individuals in the search for the true meaning of yoga. The program is designed to allow the participant to focus on their yoga training 100%, being immersed in the yoga lifestyle. Our school offers an all-inclusive approach, so there is no need to worry about accommodations or meals during the training. Comfortable rooms, healthy vegetarian meals, and a structured daily schedule aid in the ability to focus on your spiritual training away from worldly distractions.
We provide a strong spiritual foundation for our training as we teach students to live the yogic lifestyle. Our staff members are here to assist you 24 hours a day with any concerns or needs you may have. The program is based on Hatha yoga, however, we also include classes on Ashtanga yoga, Sivananda yoga, partner yoga, and even acro yoga. During the course you will learn about asana, pranayama, meditation, bandhas, mudras, shatkarma, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, yogic philosophy, the business of yoga, teaching methodology, observing students, correcting postures, sequencing a yoga class, yoga teacher ethics, and how to be an effective yoga teacher, among many other topics.
We also emphasize the importance of keeping a healthy body and mind during the yoga TTC course by utilizing Ayurveda. We serve local sattvic vegetarian food daily to assist with digestion. Our goal for our students is to assist them in cultivating physical, mental, and spiritual health for themselves, in turn, learning how to bring this balance of life to others.
